As far as I know the most detailed model of Mars Express we have so far is quite terrible.

In the old, now obsolete Mars Express, there was an xyz trajectory for the cruise stage. Maybe that can be used to show the full mission? Also, have you made any progress on the Pioneer Venus probes?

Hey Toutatis
Correction for SSC-file... it's again about demensions... lol

for a radius of 6 meters (body + solar cells), write Radius 0.006 and not 0.0006
